This week we celebrate the modern pressure cooker and our new book, Pressure Cooker Perfection. Check back daily for tips, tricks, videos, and recipes that will help you get the most out of this essential kitchen time-saver.
Welcome to #ILoveMyPressureCooker week! In the spirit of all things pressure cookers, every day we’ll be featuring a new blogger, and their experience pressure cooking. We sent 6 of our Best Buy pressure cookers to bloggers all across America, allowing them to try out recipes from Pressure Cooker Perfection. They fearlessly tackled soups, stews, sides and roasts—without any previous pressure cooking knowledge. And the outcome? Well, if they weren’t already convinced pressure cookers are the new, modern kitchen appliance, they are now.
TODAY’S FEATURED BLOGGER: bell’alimento
“Last month I received an email from America’s Test Kitchen. They shared with me they have a cookbook coming out that’s all about pressure cooking. I almost deleted the email because to be completely honest pressure cookers SCARE me. Seriously scare me. For some reason I truly believed if I used one I was going to have an explosion in my kitchen. True story. But somehow curiosity got hold of me. ”
“I replied and admitted that I’ve NEVER cooked with a pressure cooker and yet they still wanted me to give it a go. Why? Because they want to show people that pressure cooking isn’t as scary as we I think it is. They even shipped me one of their highly rated PRESSURE COOKERS to work with. The recipe I chose? Weeknight Meat Sauce with Rigatoni. Pasta in a pressure cooker? Yes. Is anyone else hearing the song “under pressure” or is that just in my head? A few things that I learned along the way is that pressure cookers have come a long way. By putting contents under pressure, you raise the temperature and cut your cooking time dramatically. I can see a lot more pressure cooking in my future, especially meats.”
